Way out of optimal ketosis

22 Nov 2012 1:15 pm     9 Comments    Posted under: Ketosis

Well after my 4 week trip to South Africa I am way out of optimal ketosis. I stopped measuring myself whilst over there – just does not work with all that restaurant food!


Now I am back to measuring again… Only 0.5 this am, need to be between 1,5 – 3 mmol/l! Will be interesting to see how long it will take for me to get back there, even though I do eat so strict anyway…

And for those of you in CT who want a ketosis meter (FreeStyle Precision) I did hear that there is a pharmacy in Bellville that sells them! Otherwise not very easy to get hold of over there!!! If you do find one please let me know about it! Thanx!

  • What is Ketosis, and does this assist with managing weight loss. I am new to this LCHF, and just finding my way around. Please excuse me if I sound ignorant, but I would rather be ignorant for a day, than for the rest of my life.

  • M-KEM did not have the Freestyle Precision in stock.
    Only realise now that my model may be different… measures both BG and BK.

    • Ok, hope they soon get more in stock then!

  • OK. Feedback about the FreeStyle Optium Blood Glucose & Ketone Monitoring System.
    Found it at M-KEM, Durban Road. (At the Durban Road off-ramp from N1 heading out in direction of Paarl).
    Price: R149.95
    B-Ketone strips (Box of 10).
    Price: R129.90
    That’s R12.99 per strip! Not cheap!
    B-Glucose strips (Box of 50).
    Price: R169.90
    That’s R3.40 per strip.

    I had to return the first meter I bought; the seal was broken on the box.
    They only had two in stock and I bought one of them!
    I warned the supervisor who assisted me with the return that there may be more peeps wanting to buy!
    Hope this helps any Capetonian interested.

    • Thank you SOOOO much! Great help to many in SA!

  • Thanks for that reference to pharmacy…will investigate.

  • I live in Bellville area and I know exactly which pharmacy it will be!
    Will check it out and let you know.

  • I am having a similar experience right now and trying to tweak my intake to rectify it, so please keep us posted with your progress, as would be very helpful 🙂

    • Sure thing… Updates continiously! 🙂
